New York City Flooding

I'm hunkered down in Brooklyn waiting for Hurricane Sandy to pass. It's impossible not to wonder - and worry about - what is happening outside, so I've been looking for pictures of flooding in New York. Here are some of the photos I've found on Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
